Milkweed Asclepias tuberosa
Bright orange flower clusters.
In a prairie habitat at Drace Park in Creve Coeur area.
Looked like it really attracted a lot of butterflies.
Milkweed has several colors depending where it is found. I think this is Butterfly bush instead of Milkweed. Regardless it is an eyecatcher.
Hmm ok yeah I can see that now thanks!
Doesn't milkweed usually have more of a pale purple colored flower?
